G-quadruplex DNA - Methods and protocols

Abstract

Thanks to the end of several genome sequencing projects it has become a reality the notion that mammal genomes (notably mouse and human) harbor hundreds of thousands of Guanine-quartets which have the potential to interact to form Guanine-quadruplexes, that is to say, non-standard DNA conformation of stabilized planar arrangement of four guanine bases. Then, in very recent years, it becomes clear enought that G-quadruplexes have general functions in Biology, not only at the telomeric ends (where the canonic sequence of TTAGGG is particularly prone to form G-quadruplexes), such as playing roles in processes as different as gene expression, DNA recombination, DNA transcription, mRNA maturation and translation......

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
